Money-Made Homes
The Billion Euro Home is a Reflection of Our Money-Obsessed Society

The Billion Euro Home is not a luxurious mansion with 300 rooms and a pool, but instead, is just a small little apartment. But this little living space is worth more than its weight in gold because it’s entirely made out of money.

Irish artist Frank Buckley has contructed a home that uses legal tender as the builing materials. Euro bills are shredded down and made into money bricks that contain about 50,000 euros worth of currency per brick. Buckley built the house to reflect the “madness” that currency has created. He wants people to realize that there are more important things in life than pieces of paper and urges people to break free of the hold money has over them.

Buckley actually lives in the Billion Euro Home, and mentioned that “Whatever you say about the euro, it’s a great insulator.”
